To fix this bug, what we need is a very clear bug report to know when we
can close it.  Actually, we require that for all bugs, so #665 should
never have been entered into the bug database like this.

What I would like to see attached to #665 is at least one .ly with
corresponding .xml with bonusses attached.

Possibly it's best to delay #665 and split it up into several different
issues (and attached bounties), each with it's own .ly -- and starting
with a most simple one.

It's only about an hour of work (see below) to convert a simple and
prepared .ly score to musicxml, see below.


That sounds encouraging.  So how far away are we from being able to handle a more realistic score, say a string quartet or a 4-part choral score with with lyrics and piano reduction?
